Revised Ivy Bridge launch schedule

With the constant flow of information about Intel's new desktop and mobile platforms it's easy to forget that many of the specifics that have been discussed are mere rumor, or future plans, that may change at any time before the launch. For many, the most important piece of news will be the official release date, so we are pleased to report new official launch dates and details, revealed by Sweclockers, and later confirmed by Donanimhaber.

The original launch date for Ivy Bridge was to be April 8th, but that has had to be adjusted, not least because of surplus stocks of Sandy Bridge wafers that need to be used up. It seems that the 7 series desktop chipsets - Z77, Z75, H77 and B75 - will be available from retailers on April 8, but Ivy Bridge processors will start rolling out 3 weeks later, on April 29.

There are ten i5 and i7 processors due for release on April 29. These include i7-3770, i7-3770K, i7-3770S and i7-3770T from the i7 range. For the i5 range, we will see i5-3570K, i5-3550, i5-3550S, i5-3570T, i5-3450 and i5-3450S processors.

Five weeks later, on June 3, Intel will launch several more i5 processors, as well as the mobile chipsets. The processors to be launched at this stage include i5-3470, i5-3470S, i5-3475S, i5-3570 and i5-3570S. Core i3 and Pentium processors with the new core will not be available until the holiday season.

Intel thinks they can delay, sell old stock at full price and gimp the next generation of chips?

I spent my Ivy Bridge budget on the new iPad and now have no intention of building a new PC at all.

I'm not the only one.

Oh yea here comes the i5 core 3570k

I do not think they (Intel Exec's) expect many enthusiasts to purchase the older stock in quantity (there will be those who cannot wait due to a really bad older machine), but businesses and system manufacturers must have their systems built on time and they are not as particular since Sandy Bridge is still a good chip to build a good machine around. They understand that those who can wait, will and the price reduction for bulk chips will be less to system manufacturers on the Sandy's before the release date than after they are out.
Just a thought...

Mr. Angry buyer, Intel gets most of it's money from people who buy apple products. Apple uses intel's processors.

No sense comment. Apple has the 10% share con computer market. Most of the intel consumer are by far PC consumers

Guess again

Intel makes money from IPAD

HMM, COUGH. Yes, Intel makes $$$ from IPAD. It's called licensing fee's that Samsung/TI/ARM/Apple itself pay to Intel for semi-conductor use. It might not be much, 25 cents. But, yeah Intel does make a little scratch from each IPAD made...
